How to Choose the Right DFW Community

Posted In: DFW Real Estate

If you’re currently searching for a new home in DFW, we know how overwhelming it can be to narrow down the right DFW community out of the myriad of options out there. A good rule of thumb is to review on-site amenities, proximity to major thoroughfares and area amenities, and the school district that serves the community. You may also consider your commute to work as a big factor for where you want to live.

At Cambridge Crossing, we’re proud to offer desirable master-planned amenities in one of DFW’s fastest-growing cities: Celina. Our blog today will explore a few important guidelines to help you choose the right DFW community for your family!

School Districts

Choosing the right Texas school district for your child is an extremely important part of the house hunting process. There are a number of ways to measure a Texas school district, including reviewing Greatschools.org, Niche’s online school rankings, or the Texas Education Agency’s school report cards.

Students living in Cambridge Crossing attend Celina ISD, a highly acclaimed public school district. Known as a “Destination District,” Celina ISD showcases top-performing schools with remarkable academic and extracurricular programs your children are sure to love.

Cambridge Crossing is also excited to be home to a new Celina ISD elementary school planned to open in 2024. The state-of-the-art facility will feature a central outdoor amphitheater and learning center.

Community Amenities

Everyone wants to love where they live! Amenities like pools, athletic courts, parks, trails and lifestyle programming help you have fun and connect with your community. Luckily for DFW house hunters, there are numerous master-planned communities offering fabulous amenities, including Cambridge Crossing.

Our community showcases a 6,700-sq.-ft. Amenity Center, on-site Fitness Center, pickleball and basketball courts, eight miles of trails, lakes, multiple pools and a planned second amenity center. We will also have a Lifestyle Director coordinating events and activities throughout the year!


A great location is a must for finding the right DFW community. No one wants to be stuck with a long commute to work or area entertainment. When evaluating a community, determine how many major thoroughfares are situated nearby and how long it will take to reach restaurants, fun things to do and other everyday conveniences.

At Cambridge Crossing, our Celina location provides a reprieve from the congestion of the city while still being positioned close to the Dallas North Tollway and Collin County Outer Loop, quickly taking you anywhere you need to be in the Metroplex.

Area Amenities

Do you love spending time outdoors at parks, shopping at premier outlets and attending community events? It’s a good idea to determine what area amenities surround your ideal DFW community before you move!

Cambridge Crossing is a quick drive to Frisco, Plano and North Dallas employment, entertainment and retail centers. You’re also right next to all of the fun found in the burgeoning Downtown Celina Square, which hosts spectacular events, unique boutiques and delicious restaurants.


Another important element to consider when researching DFW communities: who are the home builders? You can peruse reviews online and evaluate builder websites to determine if their floorplans are the right fit for you.

Cambridge Crossing features four celebrated DFW builders building on 50-, 60- and 74-foot homesites, as well as new 40-foot lots which will be available in early 2022. When you build new, you have so many options for personalizing your home the way you’ve always dreamed! Contact our builders today to learn about availability and new homes underway.

We know Cambridge Crossing is the right community for so many DFW families currently searching for a new home. Our idyllic lifestyle, sought-after amenities and excellent location culminate into a wonderful place to call home.
